Seems to me that your PDF-provider has not converted his
fonts to outline before saving his PDF, in my parts we
always do that before sending any illustration/ad to a 3rd
If this is the case, you have to install 'excactly' the same
fonts as they were using (and you could still have some
problems), or you can ask them to convert fonts to outline
and send you the resulting PDF.
